The two-story 45,351 square-foot building will include six operating rooms and space for future development.

“We identified the need for greater access to minimally invasive surgical procedures in an outpatient setting rather than at a hospital,” said Dr. Patrick Springhart, with Prisma Health. “We are excited to meet our community’s needs with a new facility and increase access to surgical care.”

The surgical center is set to open on fall 2024.
